president, a senate and a house. the democrats, despite all predictions, picked up seats in the senate, they drew more republican states. were people voting for democrats in montana and indiana and wisconsin and elsewhere because of the storm? did the people of those midwestern states say, well, you know what, obama did a good job in the storm, let's re-elect our senator. in the house, we gained house seats. unfortunately the republicans were able to gerrymander the house badly because they won the 2010 election. if we had run this house election by the same districts that existed in 2010 we'd have a democratic house now. we did very well in the democratic senate. this was a very big victory. nearly 3 million in the popular vote, the fifth time in the last six democrats have won the popular vote. as far as mitt romney's tax plan, one, we don't know what it is, he was afraid to tell us what it is because it would have brutal effect and the public did repudiate it.
